“Arcus and Brandlab worked closely on a concept of finding new areas of use for aquavit. By building on the traditional and well known Gilde Juleaquavit series we created a new vintage series. It was developed as an option for after-the-meal situations around Christmas time when Cognac and liqueur traditionally dominate.
This is the first version of Ekstra Modnet Gilde Juleaquavit, a vintage aquavit that has been allowed to stray extra long in sherry casks. This gives the aquavit a unique taste and makes it a perfect ending to any Christmas meal.
To distinguish Ekstra Modnet from the traditional Gilde Juleaquavit and to give it a premium feel, we created a unique bottle and gift box. The year is still the main focus to keep it in line with the Gilde Juleaquavit series.”

“We were asked to create men’s healthcare packaging for a well-known company for our choice, that didn’t have one. I chose Levi’s & Strauss.
My focus was on their iconic jean tag. I also used the stitching to my advantage by color coding different bottle products.”

“Marx is such an unusual name that new clients tend to get us confused with the other lot – Richard (pop singer), Groucho (the comedian) and Karl (the communist). We wanted to clear the confusion once and for all with these light-hearted promotional pieces that establish (Ryan) Marx design as a unique identity (and go down well!).”

“We needed to create a strong identity and packaging system for this product along side the actual product design, so we developed approachable, eco-friendly packaging that we feel fits the ease and style of this product and the culture it speaks to.
Urbio is an urban vertical garden that is booming on Kickstarter. We’re very excited about the concept and the trend it will lead. Urban gardens are super hot right now and Urbio is the newest and best solution we’ve seen yet.
We feel that this concept resonates so well with the general design population and are exited that we’ve funded 3 times our asking on Kickstarter!”

“The textured, principal poster-esque woodtype captures a raw, farming spirit that is inherent to winemaking, but it’s vertical application creates a bit of irreverence that is also part of Creekside’s innovative DNA. This vertical treatment also alludes to a notion of quality, and reads easily when placed in a “cellared” position lying on it’s side, and grabs important shelf attention at retail.”

“Record cover for the debut 12″ vinyl EP of my personal electronic music project, AER20-200. The aim was to create an interesting, unique and catchy package, which would also be in line with the style of the music.
In this design, the cover consists of an outer sleeve made of white cardboard and an inner sleeve made of red paper. On the outer sleeve, all of the text, such as the names of the artist and the tracks is written by cutting out letter with a laser allowing the red inner sleeve to show through. There’s nothing printed on the outer cover itself – it’s pure white. As is the actual record. Only small engravings near the blank white center label tell which side of the record is which. The music itself is electronic and falls between styles such as glitch, idm, noise and techno. The machine made nature of the album is represented in the simplistic and almost mathematically precise form of the cover.”

“Vintage metal oil cans are much better than today’s plastic oil cans like many other old things! They are more powerful, more impressive and more iconic. These days, the relatively few metal oil cans that survived that familiar pattern have become collectibles. These cans not only served as containers, they also gave oil companies one more opportunity to advertise their brand name and logo. These vintage cans are also really good source for reflecting power of Public Gothic, Antrepo’s condensed, vintage and industrial font family.”

“My task was to create a brand name, corporate identity and packaging for the manufacturer of handmade wax candles. The product packaging was designed to look like a pack of confectionery.”

“I created a concept series of flavored milk with Japanese names. I imagined these bottles and cartons being sold in a cute artisan shop in Tokyo, maybe along with biscuits and teas.
I chose some Japanese words to represent the feeling of each milk. Amai (meaning sweet) for the vanilla one. Asa (meaning morning) for the coffee flavour milk. Shizuku (meaning drop) for strawberry. Midori (meaning green) for the green tea milk.”
